  • Upon a secret journey
    I met a holy man
    His blindness was his wisdom
    I'm such a lonely man

    And as the world was turning
    It rolled itself in pain
    This does not seem to touch you
    He pointed to the rain

    You will see light in the darkness
    You will make some sense of this
    And when you've made your secret journey
    You will find this love you miss

    And on the days that followed
    I listened to his words
    I strained to understand him
    I chased his thoughts like birds

    You will see light in the darkness
    You will make some sense of this
    And when you've made your secret journey
    You will find this love you miss

    You will see light in the darkness
    You will make some sense of this
    You will see joy in this sadness
    You will find this love you miss

    And when you've made your secret journey
    You will be a holy man
    When you've made your secret journey
    You will be a holy man
    When you've made your secret journey
    You will be a holy man
    When you've made your secret journey
    You will be a holy man Writer/s: Gordon Sumner
